Mrs. Brosi worked most of her life as a homemaker, raising her family and taking care of the home and animals is what Ann cherished the most.  Ann was an outstanding cook and always had supper ready for her family.  This tradition carried on as her family grew older, Ann loved to host holiday dinners and homemade noodles were her specialty.

One of Ann’s many ministries in life was visiting area retirement centers with her sister Dorothy Tate singing and playing gospel music to the residents.  Ann attended several Hannibal churches in her lifetime; United Methodist, both Nazarene churches and the Free Methodist, where she was active in the choir, VBS and teaching Sunday school.   Ann and Roy enjoyed traveling to various parts of the United States, but one of her most talked about trips was their trip to the Holy Lands.

The family wished to thank Pleasant View Assisted Living facility for the outstanding care that they provided.
